Dance Umbrella today and tomorrow

Queen Elizabeth Hall

This year's Dance Umbrella is sheltering a particularly strong gathering of contemporary dancers representing some of the world's most famous companies. Having opened with Siobhan Davies and Merce Cunningham, we have now reached the New Yorker Stephen Petronio and the European phenomenon, William Forsythe's Ballet Frankfurt. Petronio is a regular visitor to Dance Umbrella (his appearance in a pink surgical corset was one of its most famous publicity images) and his latest offering, the full-length work Not Garden, can be seen at Queen Elizabeth Hall this weekend. Next weekend sees the London premiere of his work for Ricochet Dance Co, Fetch Boy Fox, which he made with five Ricochet dancers last spring.
